What a treat to have this nice park in downtown Newmarket! The walking trails feel like you're in the wilderness, and there are big open areas for kids to play.

We have been visiting Fairy Lake since our children were toddlers in strollers. It's an iconic part of Newmarket and perfect place for a nice stroll on a summer day. It's also been the scene of many happy celebrations such as Canada day carnivals and Christmas pageants. It's always maintained well and the beautiful waterfall in the center is part... More

I have been going to this park since I was a kid, it's turned into a lovely park that I love to take the kids for nature walks in. Nice play park for the kids as well.

Wow! We have lived in the Newmarket area for 10+ years and we never knew about this gem of a park! We spend the full afternoon playing in the water feature, then walking and playing in the park. It is a wonderful feature to have in Newmarket! Thanks! :)

Just steps away from the downtown, the town of Newmarket boasts beautiful parks, walking trails and the famous Fairy Lake. It's a great family gathering point and a great location for friends to get together. There are quaint restaurants and shops nearby.

Has something for everyone . Bike paths, walking trails , picnic areas and play ground. The town provides music in the summer on Wed. Nights. Has enough space for a large gathering while still offering secluded quiet areas.

I like to go to Fairy Lake to unwind after a busy week. I usually take my dogs who like to walk on the trails. We start at the beginning and go all round the trail and come back to our original starting point. You come across other dogs and most people respect your space and ask if your dogs... More
